comment Time Series and statistics
@DilipSarwate Ah sorry, yes I think you're correct. It was previously written as (Xt - j) and I didn't even think about whether it should be X(t)-j or X(t-j). The latter makes much more sense.

comment Generalization of variance to random vectors
Note: the covariance matrix contains covariances, not correlations (i.e. the elements are not constrained to $[-1,1]$). Further note: the diagonals of the covariance matrix are variances.

comment Finding a formula to sum natural numbers up to $n$
I love this trick -- usually blows the mind of at least one student when shown to them. Can you do something similar for the sum of squares, cubes, etc?

Take a look at factorial moments and factorial moment generating functions (That's what he's using).

comment Expressing the Venn diagram
Also be careful with what you're taking out when you add $(E-C)$.

comment Expressing the Venn diagram
$(A\cap B\cap C)$ is counted in $(A\cap B) + (A\cap C) $ twice, so if you subtract $(A\cap B\cap C)$, you're still left with one.
